  3. Yeah, I feel all of you. It pisses me off, I can get a pretty impressive lat spread, I can get big shoulders, I can get a big chest, but good god it takes so much to get my arms to grow. I found that the only thing that I can get my arms to grow with is high rep, lower weight exercises. I did high weight low rep for a long time and when I switched up they finally grew.

  4. I'm at 16" cut. I hardly ever hit just arms. I usually do a upperbody and lowerbody day followed by a rest day. I do a lot of benching, overhead, squats, deadlifts, and back work. I almost never do curls because I think they get enough work to stay strong from deadlifts and back work. They don't grow a whole lot though, but I've haven't been worried worried about being big.

    And my arms went from 14 to 16 with 35 pound gain, although I'm sure they could be bigger if I worked them more.

    hahaha. ****in starbucks. Have to target the chicks with the lower back tatts or fake nails. I have found girls with fake nails are generally just hornier.

    how did you get yours?

    -infrequent training
    -more frequent training
    -how many sets per bi's or tri's
    -what other muscles do you train them with vs. training them together
    -training intensity
    -volume
    -weight (heavy or lighter)
    From reading all of the posts you can probably tell two things. First, there's no universally accepted way to get big arms. And second, you can score with chicks at Starbuck's (which is true by the way).

    I have a dedicated arm day but I also work tri's on chest day. So, Saturday is chest day. Once I'm done with chest I'll do 5 sets of headbangers and then 5 sets of close-grip bench press both 10-12 reps.

    On arm day (Wednesday), I used to do straight bar curls but hurt my forearm and it's never been the same. So now I use the e-z curl bar and do 5 sets of 10-12 with whatever weight I can handle. It varies based on arm pain. I follow that with incline alt db's 3 x 10-12 and finally preacher for the same. My fav bicep exercise (other than straight bar) is incline alt db curls. For tri's I do pushdowns for 5 x 10-12, weighted dips for the same and then I finish with 1-arm pushdowns 3 x 10-12(I use the cable-crossover handles).

    My arms were at there best back when I kicked off arm day with straight bar curls. But I had to adapt. What I'm doing may not work for everyone but it works for me. Just play around with a bunch of different exercises and find what works best. When it seems to stop working then change it up.

    thanks man. Of course there is no universally accepted way to grow guns, but I was just wondering what people who have nicely developed arms have done to get them.

  12. pudzian, screw the arms, I'd like to know what you did to get that back!

    hahah thanks man. anyway my advice to you is as follows: COMPOUND MOVEMENTS. bent over barbell rows, dumbell 1 arm rows (sometimes I superset the two when my Cardiovascular system is in good shape and i can handle it). heavy rows, pull downs (both grip styles) and T bar rows.--deadlifts help to recruit fibers for growth (do them on a different day tho. -the bent over rows will cover these necessary angles on back day)

  14. bent over rows are a necessity. When coupled with t-bar/1 or 2 arm DB rows and cable rows you have a solid foundation

    agreed.

  17. The only thing that builds my arms are triple ascending weight sets, and triple drops. Try it, you will have bigger fuller arms in weeks. Just work it into your routine. Obviously you can't do all your sets this way, but you can do one for bis, tris, and delts each week, coupled with various other arm movements. Once you feel the wrath of the triple, you'll never do single sets again.

    ive done those before. It may be time to incorporate them again

  19. Heavy weight is not the key to building arms. Moderate weight with giant sets and triples have my arms bigger than they've ever been.

    i usually train for blood volume anyway. not weight. its true tho-what your saying. at least it works that way for me. plus my arms wont grow unless im putting on weight with the bigger muscle groups (of course) so it seems focussing more on arms to make them grow is useless. they need stimuli, but its best to put more focus on the bigger muscles

    For some heavy weight is needed to build arms. Its all very subjective. What works for you may do **** all for another. I need to lift heavy to get growth out of my arms, I have tried the light weight superset approach and it did nothing. It's funny because high volume did nothing for arms but did wonders for my quads, I was doing like 70 rep sets for quads on the leg press. Its all just ****ed up.
